Why are Anytime Feedback and Recognition being sunset?As we prepare for the transition of Glint to Microsoft Viva, we are working to ready our platform and our customers for upcoming changes. One such change is the removal of the Anytime Feedback and Recognition modules from the Glint platform. Anytime Feedback and Recognition programs have brought value to many Glint customers Our decision to remove these features is to better align the Glint product within Microsoft Viva where functionalities similar to Anytime Feedback and Recognition are already available to customers. We are excited about this potential for you and will provide more detail in the coming months. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you on your continuous listening journey and look forward to doing so in new and exciting ways in the future. What is the sunset date?There is not a specific sunset date. The Anytime Feedback and Recognition modules will remain available on the LinkedIn version of Glin

Ensuring confidentiality is critical to helping employees be honest and open in their survey responses. With accurate data, companies can take more appropriate action on results and improve their business.Glint recently introduced two improvements to the way we handle suppression (to protect confidentiality) within our platform: using response count and providing exceptions based on parent size. The Community page here goes into detail (with examples) about each of these. We encourage you to start using response count everywhere instead of head count when determining suppression. Since this will change the groups managers (and admins) are able to see within the platform (including prior surveys), it will be important to prepare your team for the change. Contact Support@Glintinc.com or your CSM on or before 5 February 2022 to make this change. That is the date on which Glint will turn it on for everyone.Additionally, we have a bypass when the “parent group” is at least 400 or more respo
Employee Well-Being Report, Sept 2021 - Learnings on Flexibility, Talent Mobility, and Candidate Expectations
Hi everyone! I’m Eric, the Head of People Science Intelligence at Glint. It’s wonderful to join the discussion in this vibrant community! In case you haven’t heard, last month we released a new Employee Well-Being Report that shared findings from our latest Glint research related to work flexibility, talent mobility, and the contrast between candidate expectations and employee realities. I feel particularly passionately about the talent mobility problem, as I believe organizations’ abilities to facilitate mobility will be essential to their retention of employees moving forward. I shared more of my perspective on this in my recent LinkedIn article - let me know what you think! There is a lot to learn from this short, quarterly report, so check out the full report here. What part of the report is your organization most focused on right now?
Help managers take action with insights, conversation and collaboration. Managers are key to improving an organization's people success and engagement. Managers who listen and respond to the needs of their team can see increases in their engagement scores in just one quarter. Glint offers managers a wealth of data about their teams’ needs. We’ve heard from some of our customers that managers take action less often than they would like because they often don’t know how to turn the data insights into next steps. That, on top of discomfort with engagement conversations and the lack of time can mean managers fail to take action.The upcoming Manager Empowerment bundle builds on our previous features to bring together an end to end, guided manager experience. The bundle consists of an enhanced manager dashboard, Team Summary, the new Team Conversations and Nudges, now in Microsoft Teams. We are especially excited to introduce Team Conversations, which brings into Glint the ACT Conversation

Hello everyone! Glint is exploring several feature concepts for Employee Experiences, and we’d like to get your reaction to them. Your honest feedback helps us think about directions for future features, so both positive and negative comments are very helpful. Please note that these are early concept explorations that may or may not, wholly or in part, result in future Glint features. Click here to access the Google Forms survey with the concept descriptions and questions. We estimate the survey takes approx. 15-20min, but duration will depend on the level of time spent considering the concepts and the amount of feedback given. We’d appreciate completion of the survey by Friday, June 11th.If there are any questions, please post them here, or email LaShaun Bellamy (email@example.com) or Clayton Holz (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you so much for your participation!
Call to actionIf your organization primarily uses the Internet Explorer (IE) browser, work with your IT team to offer employees a supported browser before September 25, 2021. Phased approachJune 26 – Support for Internet Explorer endingAs communicated since February 2021, Glint is ending support for IE as of June 26. Why? Glint applications are accessible using the current versions of most browsers. When browsers are no longer current or supported by their creators, it opens the door to security and technical issues. Now that Microsoft is ending support of Internet Explorer 11, Glint is also discontinuing support for this browser. Consequently, if an issue arises that is specific to IE, Glint will be unable to fix it. September 25 – Access to Glint prohibited for Internet Explorer users90 days after Glint ends testing and support for IE, it will restrict access altogether for individuals using this browser. Why? As IE becomes further out of date, the risk of major glitches and poor
